A public hearing was held for Bill 216, the third in a series of reorganization bills submitted by Governor Felix Camacho. Senator Bob Klitzkie (R) presided over the hearing today with three major questions: how would it serve the public better? How would it save money? And how would it help promote an adequate education? According to the senator not all the questions were answered clearly.

"They weren't prepared to say except in general terms how it would increase service to the public and they weren't prepared to attach a dollar figure to the economies involved," said the second-term lawmaker.

Bill 216 would consolidate the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Parks and Recreation, the Department of Land Management, and the Guam Environmental Protection Agency into the Department of Natural Resources.
